APRAXIA


Sound-based therapy supports change in Apraxic clients by:

Stimulating oral motor movement, tongue, lips, jaw, and palate
Developing understandable simple vocabulary
Improved use of consonant production
Developing combined Phoneme usage
Developing longer sentence lengths
Improved expressive language skills


Sound-based therapy involves the use of sound vibration that impacts the body using special equipment, programs, modified music, and/or specific tones/beats, the need for which is identified with appropriate testing.

Apraxia of speech is a motor-speech programming disorder resulting in difficulty expressing and/or coordinating the oral-motor movements necessary to produce and combine speech sound (phonemes) to form syllables, words, phrases and sentences on voluntary (rather than reflexive) control. Many children are able to hear words, and are able to understand what they mean, but they can’t change what they hear into the words.

Therapies Offered:
AIT, Tomatis®, Fast ForWord™, Interactive Metronome™, BioAcoustics™, and home programs. Therapies are only suggested after completing the Diagnostic Evaluation for Therapy Protocol (DETP®) which determines if any sound-based therapy is appropriate and when it is, in the correct order. We utilize The Davis Model of Sound Intervention®.
